Use this workbook to join Detective Justin Time and Amber Waves on their MathTacular4 sleuthing adventure. Every word problem Detective Time and Amber Waves face in their MathTacular4 sleuthing appears right here in the Workbook as well! The Answer Key provides every solution.
The MathTacular4 DVD will automatically stop after our heroes introduce each new word problem (unless you set it to play straight through). With this workbook in hand, your kids can solve the puzzle right then and there. With the push of a button, your children can restart the DVD and watch Justin Time and Amber Waves carefully work through the solution. Your children can solidify each new concept with 5 extra practice problems. Mathematical skills used in the word problems start with simple addition and work up to ratios, fractions and algebra.
The handy Tool Kit in the back of the Workbook provides everything a kid might need to solve those pesky word problems. You'll find lists of:
- Clue Words—the same words Detective Justin Time uses to decide which mathematical operation each word problem needs.
- Simple Steps to Solve Word Problems—the exact steps Detective Time and Amber Waves use to crack each puzzle.
- Units and Measurements—conversion formulas for inches to centimeters, Fahrenheit to Celsius and more.
- Common Math Formulas—need to find the area of a triangle? Look here for help.
The Answer Key is a parent's dream. You'll find answers to each problem in the workbook and see all the steps on the way to that answer. And since there's more than one way to stuff a taco you'll even see alternate ways to solve some problems.
If your kids get stuck on a problem, a quick peek inside the Answer Key will help them get started or see where they went wrong.
With the MathTacular4 DVD, Workbook and Answer Key, you're on your way to word problem confidence!
